The Phoenix Suns came clutch and defeated the Dallas Mavericks 130–126 in the NBA.
Durant, 34, scored a game-high 37 points, including the winning jumper with 11 seconds to play, lifting his new team to a 130–126 victory. Booker added 36 points on 15-25 shooting.
For the Dallas Mavericks, Luka Doncic led the scoring with 34 points on 8-23 shooting and 17-19 from the free throw line. Kyrie Irving scored 30 points on 10-of-19 shooting from the floor, including three three-pointers.
Luka Doncic and Devin Booker were involved in an altercation at the end, with both of them getting technical fouls. After the game, Luka said, “Next time, don’t wait until there are three seconds left to talk,” Doncic said.
Booker said after the game, “You guys say you don’t want everybody to be friendly-friendly.” It’s just two competitors going at it. Everybody speaks about how friendly the NBA is right now, and I don’t like that. “I have no problem with Luka on or off the court, but when we’re competing, we’re competing.” He said.
